McCleery Racing didn’t become a Thoroughbred racing powerhouse by betting on longshots. Maddie McCleery made it a multi-million dollar player through hard work, logical decisions, and a commitment to never involve herself with men who lived on the sport of kings. But when she sets her sights on a two-year-old colt her rival owns, she never imagines the lengths she’ll go to, to bring the future champion home.

Riley Jennings wants unobtainable Maddie almost more than the Triple Crown. After his Kentucky Derby win, however, he sees a way to sure-fire victory. His proposed wager stacks the odds in his favor – if her horse wins the Preakness, he’ll accept her terms. If his horse comes in first, they’ll negotiate his way.

When the dust settles on the wire, will love claim final victory, or will unexpected tragedy stop them in the gates?


The smoldering look behind those bright green eyes had nothing to do with any horse and everything to do with passion.

At length, Riley began to chuckle. “Maddie, Maddie, Maddie.” He shook his head, amused despite his painful discomfort. “I can’t sell him for three hundred thousand. And, while I promise you, making love to you would be worth three times that, I’m not going to sell him that way.”

Her look of disappointment only further provoked his humor. He leaned forward, sampling her mouth again. It took less than a heartbeat to bring her back into his arms and elicit her fiery response. Horse or no horse, Maddie McCleery wanted him. As much as he wanted her.

Sliding his lips closer to that tempting earring once more, he murmured, “You like a good wager, don’t you?”

Her throaty laugh sent another rush of desire racing through his veins. “Of course.”

Suckling at her dainty earlobe, he took it between his teeth and tugged gently, desperately trying to ignore the catch in her breathing. “I’ll make you a bet then.”

She spread her hand across his abdomen, sliding it upward to flatten it against his chest. “What kind of bet?”

"The kind where we both win in one way or the other."
